I know it's strange, because i won't be meeting all my friends, and those i only see once (or twice, Camp years <3) a year... I won't be serendipiticizing my way around those marvelous blinky corridors dripping with inventiveness, in total experimentation..
Yet, the same type of anticipation about what we'll all be capable of puting together given shitty context, online and with pixelz.. <3
Our instance just turned 2 years old!
Just as a tiny bit of history. Merveilles comes from a little IRC channel from many years ago to bring together a few people who played a small MMO with that same name.
Eventually we realized that a bunch of us had similar interests and started to build things together like Waiting for Horus, Paradise, etc..
I've got to meet lots of amazing folks working on incredible things through this. And, I love coming here.
We would like to revise the website of our anarchist union soon. To get an idea of what else is going on in the scene or how other unions are solving certain problems, I am currently collecting all kinds of modern websites that come from a similar field and can inspire us. If you have a website that comes directly to your mind, I would be happy if you would share it with me.
Boosts welcome :)
Stay healthy & take care of yourselves.
@syntax Are there any news from your e-learning course yet? I just stumbled across a post by you in my TL and thought I'd ask.
I hope you are doing well.
GERpol - BND Gesetz
Monitor hat gestern einen Beitrag zu dem neuen BND Gesetz veröffentlicht. Falls keine Nachbesserung kommen, wird die Gesellschaft für Freiheitsrechte erneut klagen.

I created some Illustrations for a course about working in the home office and possible influences on general health. Hope I can publish it to the end of the year.
Fav Artist this year: Rising Sun/The Ambientist - a producer who reminds me of Traumprinz or early Moby.If you want to play a Vinyl record of him you inevitably have to pierce a hole through the middle because a sticker with the words "Reality used to be a friend of mine" is stuck over it. Rising Sun summarized the metaphor as follows: "You have to destroy reality to perceive the music". The first listening to the record gets a completely different weight.
I think #Earthstar is finally gelling enough that I can describe it clearly:
"A protocol for user-friendly distributed apps"

I joined my local anarchist union a few months ago. After not knowing for a long time how to get involved, I have now found the possibility to design logos for some chapters. It's just a small thing but it brings me a little bit closer to the people and I have something I can support in a meaningful way.
Rest in Power David Graeber. I have never read a book by you and yet I have stumbled upon you and your thoughts at regular intervals since the Occupy protests. Last year, when I heard that you were giving a lecture at the Chaos Communcation Congress, I dropped everything and ran into the lecture hall. I was hoping that you would come back this year. You will be missed. #graeber
I discovered hyperlink.academy a few weeks ago and meanwhile they have published their first courses. Every single course sounds super interesting - but I decided to take the course "GUIs Through Art History" due to the lack of time and money. The course starts next week and I am a bit nervous and full of anticipation when I think about it.
Merveilles is a community project aimed at the establishment of new ways of speaking, seeing and organizing information — A culture that seeks augmentation through the arts of engineering and design. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
